Senshu University has hosted many international conferences on medieval
English literature - primarily on Geoffrey Chaucer and William Langland - as
well as in the related fields of Old Germanic, medieval French and
Renaissance Italian literature. These international collaborations inform and
contribute to the present volume, which addresses the heritage bequeathed to
medieval English language and literature by the classical world.
This volume explores the development of medieval English literature in light
of contact with Germanic and Old Norse cultures, on the one hand, and
Romance languages, on the other. The book includes a comparative study of
Beowulf in the Germanic context, discusses aspects of Piers Plowman and
its tradition, and offers philological approaches to Chaucer (especially his
Troilus and Criseyde). The articles assembled here collectively suggest how
the torches of classical learning were carried from continental Europe to
illuminate the pages of medieval English literature.
